1st: 430 WILLIAMS Mrs S L & Mr R Wilmerella Wells Fargo JW. I was told after judging that he was my BP at Leeds two years ago and he has matured nicely. Proud and confident. Beautifully balanced with some ground clearance and moderate in all respects. His strong well muscled hindquarters gave him some drive from the rear and his free flowing action gave him a good length of stride. Best Dog.
